Like A Boss/ Five On Friday

18 April 2014

Wow, I can't believe Friday is here already. I've been sooooo busy with work this week that the days all went by so fast. Some of you may have a holiday today, but I'm working today and tomorrow so I can get caught up before I leave for vacation. I'm still really happy that it's Friday, though, and I'm especially happy that, since no one will be in my office over the next couple of days, I can get some extra minutes of sleep by strolling in without having to look very presentable (yoga pants and a hoodie it is).

Besides the whole work thing, let's see what else has been happening this week.

ONE// I really have to start off with some vacation talk because that's pretty much all that's been consuming my thoughts this week. One of my favourite things about vacations is the anticipation leading up to them. No matter how crummy of a day or a week you're having, when you know you're going on a vacation it seems to make everything so much better. I am so excited for wedding activities, shopping, Disney World, lying out in the sun doing absolutely nothing, and did I mention shopping? Plus, I can not wait until I can squish these two boys.


TWO// Speaking of shopping, I received two packages in the mail this week. I've never been a huge online shopper (mostly because I usually like to see exactly what I'm getting), but I could really get use to this. It's nice checking your mail box and seeing other things besides flyers and bills for once.


I ran out of the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser and I loved it so much that I ordered an even bigger version, along with a new brush head for my Clarisonic. I've mentioned my feelings on the Clarisonic before, and they still hold strong...if not stronger. 


We don't have a Forever 21 here in the province (gasssp..i know), but I made sure these pretty, colourful necklaces came home with me. I expect they'll get great use over the next couple of months.

THREE// Although I bought this mug for Todd a while back, I've been stealing it from him all this week. Maybe I like the daily reminder, or maybe I just like to pretend. Either way, I need more mugs like this in my life. I'm thinking I'll just have to look online so I can get some more mail surprises.
 
 
FOUR//  I'm sure a lot of you have heard of Quest Bars, right? If you haven't, you should try them; they're very high in protein and fiber, gluten free, and really low in sugar. I try to keep one in both my lunch bag and purse at all times because when I get hungry...look out, it aint pretty! I tried a new kind this week, chocolate chip cookie dough, and it's just another flavour to add to the list of ones I love (but I guess how could you not love anything called chocolate chip cookie dough?).


FIVE// Despite working lots of overtime, I'm actually pretty impressed with myself for what I accomplished this week. Between not getting in bed as early each night (I don't think I need a 9 o'clock bedtime) and slacking off watching tv, I managed to find time for the #1800minutechallenge (an update coming soon...hopefully!), the never ending house chores, the majority of errands that needed to be done before we went away, and even some blogging. Like a boss! See, the mug totally helped. Such a nice feeling to have at the end of the week.

 Happy Easter weekend!  Enjoy it (with lots of chocolate)!

  2. I really need to get into using my Clarisonic more. I've had one for years and I'll use it for a day or two and then won't. Do you use in the morning and night?

  3. That might be one of the cutest baby pictures ever! So sweet! I've heard a few bloggers talk about Quest bars but I'm afraid to try them because I'm sooo picky with protein bars and can't stomach most of them. I remember you saying how much you love that cleanser! I definitely want to try out the fresh brand! Happy Friday!
